Sitting proud above the shimmering expanse of Lake Windermere, Holbeck Ghyll enjoys panoramic views of the pikes and fells. Inside, the house is consummately stylish, it's art nouveau signature decor beautifully maintained, and an air of a peaceable retreat reigns supreme. Confident country-house cookery discreetly offset with a little French-inspired modernity is the deal here, opening with confit duck terrine with pear, green beans and brioche, while main course stars roasted wild turbot supported by creamed leeks, crisp ham and red wine sauce. A dessert of vanilla bavarois with blackcurrant and liquorice sorbet is given textural variety with the crunch of brandy snap, honeycomb and a shard of blackberry meringue.
